Vellacott returns to lead team in crucial encounter

IN THE absence of Ben O'Connell, Nick Vellacott takes the reins as skipper of Central Districts for their clash against Brothers today.

Only problem is Vellacott has been away on holidays and won't have seen his teammates until shortly before play begins at Mark Marsh Oval.

Not that it is a concern for the unflappable Vellacott, or his teammates. Brothers need a win to qualify for the one-day competition semi-finals.

It would also give them extra breathing space near the top of the two-day Ipswich Logan Premier League ladder, where they sit second behind Laidley.

"They beat us earlier in the year and were pretty strong," Vellacott said.

"We expect much of the same.

"I don't know if anyone is out or if they're full-strength."

Vellacott expects Brothers to be near their peak but the motivation for Centrals is also high.

A win will put them third on the two-day ladder.

"The boys should be nice and refreshed," Vellacott said.

"We'll have pretty much the same side as usual apart from Ben."

O'Connell is captaining Queensland Country at the national country titles in Bundaberg.

"We've got to play well and we should be alright," Vellacott said.

In the weekend's other game Laidley hosts Alberton at Bichel Oval.
